Crack-of-Dawn French Toast
Crack-of-Dawn French Toast
From the Kitchen of: Seventeen Magazine (a looong time ago)
Prep Time: Unknown -- probably less than 15-20 minutes
Category: Breakfast
Servings: 6 or so

Ingredients: No Stick Cooking Spray
12 slices slightly stale bread
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup favorite jelly
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt (opt)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Karo Dark Corn Syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Spread 6 slices of bread with peanut butter and the other 6 with jelly. Sandwich the PB & J slices together (try high-fiving, each holding a slice!) then place them in the baking dish (being careful not to overlap).
3. In a medium size bowl, use a wire whisk or fork to mix the eggs, milk and salt until smooth. Pour the mixture over the sandwiches.
4. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the sandwiches. Bake immediately or cover and refrigerate overnight.
5. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. For a cool look, cut each sandwich diagonally into four triangles. Serve topped with dark corn syrup (warmed in microwave for 20 sec. on high)

Per Serving:

Notes: This looks like a good recipe to make with a child or a date. :D I haven't made it myself, but I doubt it would turn out badly. I'll probably substitute maple syrup for the corn syrup.

Baked Ziti Casserole
Baked Ziti Casserole
From the Kitchen of: Mom M
Prep Time: 40-50 min. total
Category: Vegetarian
Servings: 6

vegetable cooking spray
8 oz. ziti, uncooked (2 cups)
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded skim-milk Mozzarella cheese
2 cups meatless spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped basil leaves (I substituted dried basil from a sub. chart)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions: Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray rectangle baking dish with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1/2 of the mozza cheese, and 1 cup of the sauce with basil, garlic powder, and pepper. Add in the pasta. Spoon this mixture into the casserole dish, then top by spreading the remaining sauce over and cover it with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan on the top. Cover and bake for approx. 20 minutes. Uncover and continue to back an additional 15 minutes.

Per Serving:

Notes: We substituted dried basil from a substitution chart -- nowhere near a 1/4 cup of basil. Sprinkling basil to taste is my favorite lazy way of doing this.
